Few days ago, cleared Salesforce Platform App Builder Certification Transition exam, its my 7th Salesforce Certification, I have DEV401 so for me its was 30 minutes exam, having 20 questions, but if you don't have DEV401 then it will be 60 mutliple choice questions for you for 120 minutes, if you have DEV401 and ADMIN 201 then it will be easy for you to clear the exam. Even though I would recommend to study before appearing in the exam. To know more about the exam click here.

Key topic to cover before appearing in the exam :

1. Field Type change affects ( 1 question )
2. Relationships and their properties ( *Master Detail, lookup ) ( 3 questions )
3. Lightning components (*Global Actions, Object Specific Actions) ( 3 questions )
4. Record Types ( 3 questions )
5. External objects ( 1 question )

7. Unmanaged and Managed Packages ( 1 question )
8. Social Accounts, Contacts and Leads ( 1 question )
9. Salesforce1 ( 1 question )
10. Trailhead ( **Salesforce Practice )

I don't remember the questions, but the above topics are more than enough to clear the exam, please do go through the study guide. Passing percentage is 65% that means at least 14 questions should be correct.

Suggestions :

1. Read the questions carefully and the options, many question were TRUE and FALSE and Multiple answer questions.
2. Don't know the right answer, no worries, search for the wrong one, it will clear off your confusion.
3. Easy exam, but don't take it lightly, prepare yourself then go for it.

All the best.

Reasons Why #Salesforce is the best technology to work with

Many times I felt to share my thoughts for Salesforce and what I feel while working on platform, their are many things in the list and I tried to cover most of them. Might be something got missed because they are allot.

Starting with the best : Connectivity

Salesforce has connected just everything that is working with them or working on Salesforce, salesforce have Partner Programs, in which they help other companies who work on Salesforce, to make it easier for them to do business.

Connects every one with their largest tech-fest DREAMFORCE. This df'15 was also the biggest one. Saleforce helps their customer at everyone point. They work with the society as well, as in this dreamforce they donated 1 Million books to read more click here

Salesforce hearts : Salesforce MVPs

Salesforce have like 190+ MVP, which are nominated by others, they are the one who utilize there knowledge and experience of salesforce and their work with other to help them learning in Salesforce, this is also a best way
to acknowledge the person who are truly dedicated to their work, few MVPs I know are just awesome and happy to help others, normal example you can have in the communities of Salesofrce they are every where and making Salesforce geeks everyday, they inspire others with their work helping other in learning of the new things of the Salesforce. Salesforce MVP's are truly hero's the way they encourage other, Lauren Jordan is great example of this initiative she encourages the girl power by writing about womens working on the technology by this she inspire others as well (
And the other one is "Admin Hero" this guy is really a hero, writes about the awesome stories of those guys who have been delicately worked on Salesforce ( This blog is by Brent Downey, this is his way of encouragement.

Trailhead : Place to play and learn Salesforce
